Songstress Katie Melua has announced a new tour.
The Nine Million Bicycles star will perform at 13 dates in the UK as part of the European tour.
Her UK dates kick-off at Manchester Apollo on December 4 this year and conclude at Bristol's Colston Hall on December 21.
The tour is to promote Katie's as-yet-untitled fourth album, which will be released in May 2010.
Katie, 25, teamed up with songwriters Guy Chambers, best known for his work with Robbie Williams, and Rick Nowels, and producer William Orbit, for the album.
William wrote on his Twitter page: "This is shaping up to be one of the finest things I've ever been involved with. I am hearing what can only be described as magic."
:: Tickets for the concerts will be available from January 22.
